Vintage Jewelry Finds!

Check out this tin of old vintage jewelry I picked up at a local junk store.   Some pieces are missing stones or are just one-half of a pair of earrings but they'll be great for crafting and reusing.  They were selling each piece for 25 cents but I got the whole tin for $4.00.

My friend, VintageSue, is always finding the neatest vintage jewelry and uses them in her unique, altered creations; her stuff is so cool!   You really need to check her blog out; lots of fun thrifting stories and vintage finds; she truly loves everything vintage and incorporates it all into her life and home.

I had a reader ask if I was a vendor at the Bainbridge Festival a few weekends ago and no, unfortunately I wasn't, but I was there on Saturday as a shopper and visitor!   I love that area of Ohio and that festival is one of the biggest and funnest around.   I love all the yard-sales in and around the festival; so many great finds.   I did buy a few pieces of hypertufa that are pretty cool; a leaf-cast and a sunflower birdbath; I'll post those pics soon.

My DH and I are still working on our latest creations and I will be posting them sometime this week.   I'm also working on getting my giveaway stuff together, so stay tuned and thanks for visiting!

Hope you have a bloomin' weekend!
